All Quiet on the Foodie Front

Things have been pretty quiet 'round the homestead when it comes to foodstuffs and related activities. I popped into Gnarly Vines a few days back while they were having a kosher wine tasting, which was interesting. I didn't try anything I was particularly excited about, although the manischewitz-like wine made from concord grapes was certainly something new. There was also a moscat that would make a decent dessert wine.

I did pick up a half-dozen bottles of a few different things, including a surprising pinot noir (from France, which I found interesting since it was sold as a varietal) and a couple of Bordeauxs that I'll definitely be trying again. Unfortunately because I'm lazy I don't have any pictures at the moment, which I know pains all of you.

It should be a food and booze-filled weekend, however, so plan on something fun popping up in the next few days.

Clinton Hill Foodie's protip of the day: Don't leave chocolate-covered raisins around where a dog can get to them. Riley's fine, but I'm hoping we don't have to go through that again.
